    1. A nice, light read from Lori Copeland. Evie partners up with a "kindly, older gentleman" and heads out west to make her way in the world. There she meets Noah who has gambled everything on a fresh start in life. Noah as been badly hurt by a woman before, so he is less than happy to see Evie show up--but he can't stop thinking about her.I love that the book is based on real people. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline of building a new settlement in virgin territory. Evie was really irritating for [...]


    2. What a fun story. Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith have done it again. A page turner you won't be able to put down until the end. You'll laugh, you'll cry. And in the end you'll be glad you read this excellent story about the settling of Seattle. All the things that could go wrong certainly do. But there are so many things that go right also. The lumberjacks turn out to be a lovable bunch. So helpful and protective of the women who show up at their camp. And the native Americans add their own hu [...]


    3. I really enjoyed this book. Good, well developed, likable characters. Evie was a lady before her time. Strong and independent. Noah was adorable. Together they made a great team. The secondary characters were also very enjoyable, with the exception of Miles, Noah's uncle, Evie's partner. He was nice, just not always forthcoming with information. Having read book two, Rainy Day Dreams, before reading book one, I can tell you that it is equally enjoyable. We get to see more of, Noah and Evie, as w [...]


    4. A Bride for Noah was a wonderful trip back to Washington state, or in the 1850's Oregon Territory. With the wonderful description, I felt like I was looking out on Washington state again and viewing Mount Rainer. It is a beautiful area of our country and a fantastic setting for this story.The story focuses on Evie Lawrence, a house maid to an older couple in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She is doing what ever she can to keep a roof over her head, since she was kicked out of her family home after she [...]

    7. A Bride for Noah is #1 in the Seattle Brides series byLori Copeland andVirginia Smith. It's a historical Christian romance in not-yet-settled Seattle in the Oregon Territory in 1851. Evangeline Lawrence is a housemaid for an older gentleman named Miles and his wife in Tennessee. Miles' nephew Noah Hughes writes to him and says Miles should send some females out to the Oregon Territory. as there are almost none. Evie doesn't have much to tie her down in Tennessee, so she decides she'd like to try [...]


    8. First of all I must thank Harvest House Publishers, Lori Copeland, and Virginia Smith for a wonderful opportunity to read this book in advance. Then I must thank NetGalley for getting us all together in order for this to work.A Bride for Noah is a Christian read, but it's not just for Christians. The story that the characters and the authors have to tell is interesting, moving, and would resonate for any reader. Evie is down on her luck. She is currently without any close family, but a letter ar [...]


    9. The beginning Seattle. An Adventure in logging, love and more.Evie feels she can leave Tennessee and start over. She travels with an employee who she has a partnership with to start a restaurant. Two other ladies are with them too. When she cannot get help from the loggers, it doesn't stop her from getting ladies to help her clear off lady for a restaurant. Love that part a lot.Turns out land belonged to Noah so she forms a partnership with him too. Noah can hardly believe his Uncle brought wome [...]


    10. I really enjoyed this book, but then again I enjoy anything with Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith's names on it. This book is what I would call a light read. No edge of your seat suspense or lives hanging in the balance, just some good old fashioned hard work and history, with some romance thrown in.I loved Evie, or rather I loved her strength and determination to see her dream fulfilled. And poor Noah, just wanting to do his job and do it well he keeps getting thwarted by Evie and "the ladies" [...]


    11. A woman is inadvertently given the opportunity by her employer to move to the west and make something of herself. After making the decision to cut ties with her fiancé, she takes her employer up on his offer. Dragging along some husband-seeking friends with her, Evangeline Lawrence sets out to reform part of the west, starting with a restaurant in the middle of a settlement made up entirely of a lumberjacking community. Evie herself is a woman on a mission; she is determined and hardheaded, and [...]


    12. A sparkling romance reminiscent of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Here Come the Brides, Virginia Smith and Lori Copeland’s A Bride for Noah combines a classic love story with an engaging historical setting. Unhappy with her fiancé and suspecting his motives for proposing were purely financial, Evie Lawrence risks everything to leave Chattanooga and travel across the country to a rough, remote logging settlement in Northwestern Washington. With the help of her eccentric employer, Miles, w [...]


    13. It's 1851 and Evie Lawrence is working for Miles and Letitia Coffinger and as Miles is reading a letter from his nephew, Noah Hughes, to his wife, Evie overhears the suggestion to bring a load of women to Oregon Territory. Evie is engaged to James but one evening she finally sees the light and a different plan starts forming in her mind. She confronts Mr Coffinger first to see if he'd be willing to be a partner in a new restaurant in the Oregon Territory then she breaks off the engagement with J [...]


    14. Noah Hughes jokingly wrote to his uncle and aunt about the desperate need for females in the settlement. His uncle sees the opportunity and a chance to see an investment. Evie Lawrence partners with Noah's uncle (and three other ladies) in hopes of starting a restaurant in the new town on the West Coast. Little do they realize, the town is a lumber camp and they will need to build their lives up from the ground.Everyone begins their Seattle life as an escape from their past. Noah wanted to escap [...]


    15. This is the first in a series of which I enjoyed Evie was a strong and in depended young woman and based on a letter written to Miles from one of the men in the Seattle wilderness decided that it would be just the place for her to start a restaurant with Miles . She was unprepared for the isolation but was going to make a go of it. Most of the people at the settlement were lumberjacks who were excited having some unmarried women (Evie had brought along a few other women for her planned business) [...]


    16. I really enjoyed this interesting historical romance! I liked the characters, though Evie wanted her own way a little too much and was a bit too pushy, to my way of thinking. I admired her determination and perseverance, though. It was interesting learning about the beginnings of Seattle, from the logging business to Chief Seattle's dealings with the new settlers. I was amused by Evie and the other three ladies that came with her to start a restaurant and wondered what new escapade they would ge [...]


    17. This was a pretty good read. A little predictable but interesting none the less. Evie and Miles head towards a new settlement being built. Along with them travel three ladies; all to start up a restaurant. Evie was a little sassy and that was kind of different for a character; but I never really warmed up to her much. New settlement talk at some times in the book seemed a little bit like reading a encyclopedia of information; but the natives were added bonus at some spots in the book adding a mu [...]


    18. What a wonderful trip into early Oregon this book was! I laughed, and gritted my teeth, and wanted to shake both hero and heroine a couple of times. These authors know how to create living, breathing characters that quickly feel like old friends to whom one doesn't want to say goodbye.Indians and lumberjacks, snobs and gutter rats, ne'er-do-wells and hard-working, solid citizensd a hard-headed heroine that'll make you want to send her to bed without dinner a time or two. All together in one deli [...]


    19. This was a great book, full of history (1800's in the Oregon Territory). The story was wonderful about a young woman coming to the Oregon Territory to open a restaurant. So many ups and downs for her as her business partner is a bit of a flake but she is strong and perseveres. There is romance and also light hearted moments, I hated for it to end! Lori Copeland is a wonderful author!


    20. A fun read considering that I live near Seattle. I especially loved the amount of actual history there was. But why did James seem to change in character for no reason? He was pretty rotten to Evie in the beginning. I guess I will have to read the next book hoping for more information.


    21. This is one of the few books I can rate a five.The humor in this book was delightful and had me laughing so hard. Some things were not realistic, but that did not detract from this book too much. Lots of twists and turns in a lighter tone make this book another good one to read.


    22. Such a good book!!I am so glad there will be more books in this series!!I haven't been to the pacific northwest, but I enjoy reading aboutIt's history.I have enjoyed books by these authors and hope to read many more in the future!!




    23. Cute, clean read. Pretty slow in the middle. I found myself skimming some and peeking ahead a few times but all in all cute book.
